The worldwide dog food recall, which has impacted dog guardians worldwide has many families asking just what their dogs should really eat.
The debate has reached far and wide with proponents of different dog diets claiming superiority for their chosen dog food.
The Pet Food Institute set the bar for the debate by claiming that dog food is safe, in response to recent hearings in the U. S. Senate, aimed at determining the cause of commercial dog food contamination which has claimed the health and lives of thousands of dogs, due to acute kidney failure.
The consequences of feeding your dog commercial dog food manufactured by many companies has long been known to dog nutrition experts and savvy dog guardians everywhere.
